Excellent monitor

Michael I., Newegg
30 January 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this for my Mother to replace an old monitor. The height adjustment is great because the old monitor didn't work well with her trifocals. Color and image rendering are excellent, as is to be expected with a Samsung video display.
  • Pros: Height adjustment, excellent color rendering.
  • Cons: Buttons are hard to see.

Great display

  • Summary: I'm using this in portrait mode next to a 27 inch 16:9 monitor as a companion monitor. This fits perfect, as the width matches the height of the other screen; though the resolution difference makes images display smaller, and makes for a strange transition from one screen to the other screen.
  • Pros: Swivels to portrait mode. Sharp display, good colors, price is right.
  • Cons: No cons for me, see "Other Thoughts".

Adjustable, Screen Rotates, Mac ready: best I've ever had

  • Summary: I have neck problems and I chose the Samsung B1740R 17 inch for use as an external monitor because the height adjusts till it's only an inch from the desktop. A bonus: the screen rotates, and this works with the MacBook Pro without the included (Windows only) software.

Double screen

  • Summary: This would have been a nice monitor had it been compatible with HP computer. I was trying to use it as a secondary monitor for my work a home job. No dice. Would not connect with the HP PC. Bummer. I have other Samsung products that work just fine. I had to send it back. The seller was great though.

  • Pros: crisp and clear picture with no ghosting while playing games. stand is height and tilt adjustable. prefer the 4:3 ratio monitors to the widescreen and this monitor does the job. comes with both analog and digital cables, a definite plus! imo you can't go wrong if you purchase this.
  • Cons: none that i have noticed.

Quality is sporadic

Exec O., Newegg
16 November 2011
  • Summary: I've used this monitor on two different computers so far in two different locations, and it randomly will start getting "fuzzy," where the screen will start jittering a bit. (It reminds me of the days when fans and flourescent lighting caused the old school monitors to flip out.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, height adjustable
  • Cons: Screen sporadically gets fuzzy

Great monitor

Hadley B., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Summary: So pleased to find such a well-made monitor that works with a lower screen resolution. I was a little nervous to order a monitor online and have it shipped, but it arrived quickly and in beautiful shape. Thank you for an excellent product and excellent service.
  • Pros: Very crisp, clear picture, adjustable height is great for my sore neck and shoulders, 3 year warranty, will also work with my Mac, stand is excellent and product seems very well-made
  • Cons: I've only had it about a month, so I can't speak to how long it will last.

  • Pros: buona marca
